16:29 jeffreykegler Leonard Nimoy has died at 83.
16:29 jeffreykegler His Marpa connection is that he is the actor who speaks the Kollos epigraph, as the Kollos character -- it's via a mind meld.
16:30 jeffreykegler "This thing you call language though, most remarkable. You depend on it for so very much. But is any one of you really its master?"

17:42 pczarn what can be used to report parse errors with Libmarpa, besides marpa_r_terminals_expected?
18:00 rns joined #marpa
18:04 rns pczarn: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/m​arpa/2015-02-28#i_10196407 -- marpa_r_alternative() can tell you MARPA_ERR_UNEXPECTED_TOKEN_ID, MARPA_ERR_DUPLICATE_TOKEN, MARPA_ERR_NO_TOKEN_EXPECTED_HERE and MARPA_ERR_INACCESSIBLE_TOKEN, via marpa_g_error(g, NULL), which you can recover via another .marpa_r_alternative() call.
18:04 rns Or have I misunderstood?
18:06 rns s/via marpa_g_error(g, NULL)// -- marpa_r_alternative() returns error codes directly.

18:14 rns re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/m​arpa/2015-02-28#i_10196053 -- what a legend. RIP, Mr. Nimoy.

19:43 jeffreykegler rns: I think we now can now very safely believe that we have a consensus to convert Libmarpa to an MIT license.
19:44 jeffreykegler Would you like to take it on?  There's a home-made license checking mechanism which needs updating, so perhaps I should do it.

23:37 rns jeffreykegler: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/m​arpa/2015-02-28#i_10196974 -- sure, I was thinking about investigating and creating a github issue with a todo list to track the transition item-by-item, because licensing language occurs here and elsewhere in the code and the doc.
23:47 jeffreykegler joined #marpa
23:48 jeffreykegler rns: actually now that I look at it, it's something I should do I think.
23:48 jeffreykegler My license checking utility is special-purpose and idiosyncratic.
23:49 jeffreykegler Also, we won't be doing this a lot, so there is really no purpose in introducing you to this code.
23:50 jeffreykegler Ack these lines, so that we don't duplicate effort, and once you do, I'll start on it.
